The A'nd Distribution Slalom race day is on

... with a great forecast that will line up some spectacular racing. First start is scheduled for 9.30 am tomorrow, Saturday 1st October. Venue is Farm Cove. See the map below for the location.

There is a large grass area and nice beach for launching. Wind is forecast for 20 kts plus and at farm cover it may in fact be a bit stronger. Due to the tide, we have until 1 pm to complete 16 races (8 each fleet) so hence an earlier start.

This spot is great for spectators too as the start line will be close to shore and so will the the 2nd gybe mark and finish.

So bring your friends and family along to come watch. Its likely that we will also have access to the pakuranga sailing club building so that will provide a nice vantage point for spectators.

bbq and beers after as well as the A'nd distribution spot prize draw. You need to be there to be in to win.

We will run racing for two fleets. A Gold Fleet and a silver fleet. Sailors can elect which fleet they wish to be in but may be asked to move up or down by organisers. This is to ensure a good balance of sailors with similar abilities in each fleet. There should not be a need to run heats within each fleet. So all sailors in a fleet will race each other for each race on the day and for all races of the series. Sailors will stay in their fleet for the duration of the race series. If a fleet has more than 10 sailors in it then we may need to spilt that fleet into heats.

Entry fee is $100 for the series or $30 per race day. You will also need to be a member of a local windsurf club or Windsurfing New Zealand.

notice of race and entry form can be found here.
